Since withdrawing from the Presidential race, Dr. Ben Carson has be vocal in his opposition of the Clinton’s and their detrimental policies. The latest attacks address Bill Clinton’s suggestion that Syrian refugees be used to rebuild Detroit. This, despite the fact 95 million Americans are out of work.
According to Breitbart:
Marlow asked Carson about former president Bill Clinton’s suggestion that Detroit should be repopulated with, and rebuilt by, refugees from Syria.
“If it’s Bill Clinton that’s suggesting it, I would examine it very carefully,” Carson laughed. “You know, there are plenty of people in Detroit who you could almost look at as refugees. I mean, we need to take care of our own people. We need to create jobs for them. That’s relatively easy to do.”
“You look, for instance, at the over $2 trillion overseas, that’s not being brought back because of our high tax rate. Lets’ bring that money back, incentivize it to be brought back by getting rid of the taxes on it, but requiring that 10 percent of it be used in enterprise zones, and to create jobs for people who are unemployed or underemployed,” he suggested. “It would be the biggest stimulus since FDR’s New Deal, and it wouldn’t cost the taxpayers one penny.”
“Those are the kinds of things we need to do, because then it gets corporate America once again involved in their communities. And they used to be, before the government took over everything and messed it up,” Carson said.

It’s typical that a Democrat believes jobs are created by government paying people to do work that is better utilized by a free market based on supply and demand.
In this case, there are 95 million Americans needing work, and when there is enough incentive to rebuild Detroit, there will be a need to rebuild Detroit. Diverting tax-payer dollars to do the job is equivalent of the ‘broken window fallacy’ and will result in more lost jobs rather than jobs added.
